  Sick56 / Higgins++ - Out of the Black Pool
By Real Art Magazine (Russia) - Pavel submitted

Sick 56/Higgins++ 7´´ split ((JSNTGM Records, p.o. box 1025, Blackpool, FY3 OFA, UK; To tell the truth, more and more I am declined to opinion, that to sing about how, for example, is healthy to go for a drive on a skateboard, or about any so important things HERE and NOW is a little short-sightedly... Suddenly when your son then will grow, and there will come time when he ask questions about todays. I never ask my father about something like that; it´s a pity that all his life was with fear and lie inside himself. All his life he was afraid to tell or do something wrong and not so!!! He was one of those who did everything in a proper way, went on all demonstrations, meetings and working-saturdays, participated in the peoples team, chorus, the wall newspaper - eventually he was appointed to be a Communist Party organizator on a factory. I was very little but have well remembered, how he left and betraid the friends only because they departed too far from a line of the Communist Party or simply ceased to be entered in system - as I understand it now, and that days I willingly trusted all explanations of parents. I remember what he told me about Poland in 83-rd and how they laughed with his friends above Sakharov... Fuck, more I think about it - more details arises in my memory! And he was a cool guy - the public man, the provisional family man, he wrote verses in the factory newspaper. We have a heap of old photos, on which he is a tourist, with a backpack and guitar (yes, he sang all his life under a guitar. No Galich, Okudjava or even Vysotsky. All about our favourite Native land and something of this type: "The hippopotamus has no waist The hippopotamus has no waist The hippopotamus has no waist It is not able to dance We beat him on a muzzle with a teapot We beat him on a muzzle with a teapot We beat him on a muzzle with a teapot And we´ll teach him how to dance!" For him it was the top of hooliganism and freethinking.). Now he is old, understanding nothing and disappointed in everything person, malicious for the whole world - he doesn´t want to know that almost all his life he was not RIGHT! So. It will not be a shame to musicians with this plate before their children. Monsters (-at me this word has positive painting) of the rock-n-roll polit-punk Sick 56 "have taken" with the common power of the songs (if fairly, I want more concrete texts.): two malicious, very fast punk-hits. As well as in a case with their high-grade album of the last year "Recipe For Disaster" (which I was lucky enough to listen and review), I was pleased with quite perceptible UK-Subs melodic intonations. The third song - Higgins ++ "Cool Britania Uber Alles". If you remember, it is a project by Andy Higgins, the chief of JSNTGM Records. Though his last year´s album sounded rather ascetically - he simply sang the songs impregnated with a politics under an electroguitar, on this plate he is accompanied by a high-grade band (Sick 56), that, probably, has a little lowered originality, but there is more drive and power! Look on the name of the song - how it can be played without drive?!!! The text is changed according to realities of the modern Great Britain and the common situation in the world. Yes, there it is possible to argue on much, but Andy lifts these questions, speaks about them, instead of fucking my brains with senseless freaks. The circulation is limited to five hundreds copies (till now I do not understand the necessity of this thing!). I dare to hope that in the world there are more reasonable people. Review by Pavel
